Not sure if those words ring any bells in your head.....they do in mine. Not having been in a boot camp setting in over 50 years, I am not sure how the D.I.'s speak to military recruits these days but I can imagine things haven't changed a whole heck of a lot over the years. I can imagine that the recruit is still treated like some sort of maggot, a sub-human form, perhaps a worm that has crawled up out of the earth to be stepped on by authority.
I was writing to my friend Darryl tonight (check him out over there to your right -impart ministries)..... about some things I would refer to as the spiritual variety of that stuff we call baloney ......
I find myself asking....."what ever happened to that little gift we used to call spiritual discernment?"
Kind of a different way of looking at things. :)
